Daniel Radcliffe raps 'Alphabet Aerobics' on 'Tonight Show'

Daniel Radcliffe knows the alphabet—and performed a complicated rap song on Tuesday to prove it.

The Horns star went on The Tonight Show Tuesday evening and revealed that he’s always had an “obsession” with memorizing tricky rap songs, including Blackalicious’ “Alphabet Aerobics.” So, of course, Jimmy Fallon made him show off his skills.

Highlights from Daniel Radcliffe's first Comic-Con

“There are two facts that tend to amaze people,” says Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe. “That during my whole life I’ve only spent four weeks total in L.A. and that I’ve never been to Comic-Con.”

Thanks to the fantasy thriller Horns (out Oct. 31), in which he plays a young man who sprouts devilish protuberances from his head, the actor made his first appearance at the San Diego fanfest on July 25. A few moments after leaving his inaugural Hall H panel, the 25-year-old shared some of the highlights of his trip.

Go backstage with Daniel Radcliffe at 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

You have four weeks left to see Daniel Radcliffe in Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan – but if you need a primer of what to expect, look no further.

Just below, EW has exclusive video of Harry Potter Radcliffe winding (not wanding) through the corridors of the Cort Theatre. You’ll see the seaside ship that occupies much of the foreground of Act I, the country store with yards and yards of canned peas — including the oft-mentioned Fripple Frapple candies that gangly townie Bartley (Conor MacNeill) harps on through the play — and a rather large and worrisome peephole, which has gotten the cast in trouble on a few occasions. DanRad also checks in on his Tony-nominated costar Sarah Greene, who plays the fire-haired and equally fire-breathing Helen — a woman who tortures the locals, including Radcliffe’s Cripple Billy. Thankfully, Greene is much kinder in real life than her character is. Our young star even lets us into his dressing room, where we learn what former Cort tenant Ian McKellen left for him — as well as why Cripple Billy is so in love with cows.

This Week on Stage: Tony nominations aftermath and fun facts!

tony-award-statue

The 2014 Tony nominations were announced on Tuesday, and left many elated and just as many puzzled. No Denzel? Or Daniel Radcliffe? And nothing for everyone’s favorite traveling NYC duo? But there were some wonderful surprises (four acting nods for Twelfth Night!) and the lack of frontrunners (minus Neil Patrick Harris, Bryan Cranston, and perhaps this divine gal) will make the Hugh Jackman-hosted ceremony on CBS June 8 full of nail-biters. But here are some fun trivia bits about this year you can chew over until then (many of them compiled by our own Jake Perlman): READ FULL STORY

Meet the cast of 'The Cripple of Inishmaan,' starring Daniel Radcliffe -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Daniel Radcliffe is currently prepping for his third stint on Broadway, this time in a quirky play called The Cripple of Inishmaan, a dark 1996 comedy from Martin McDonagh.

Daniel Radcliffe on his dark Broadway return and why a movie-musical could be next

Few actors have managed to transcend the roles that made them famous the way Daniel Radcliffe has. Even before he hung up his Harry Potter robes, Radcliffe began undertaking a handful of challenging roles that were, whether intentional or not, significant departures from the boy wizard. Particularly when it comes to his work on stage, Radcliffe’s moves have been brave and bold, baring it all in Equus and charming audiences with surprising musical chops in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

His third time on Broadway is now at hand — he’ll star in Martin McDonagh’s pitch-black comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan, which begins performances April 12 at the Cort Theatre — and Radcliffe is eager to get back to the stage. EW stole a few minutes of his time on the set of Frankenstein to chat about reprising his role, the lessons he’s picked up on Broadway, and what other role is at the top of his wish list.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You must have genuinely loved doing Cripple of Inishmaan in London to reprise it over here. What makes you most excited to pick up Billy’s hat again?
DANIEL RADCLIFFE: It was all in all a really, really great experience last year. I love the play, I’ve worked on Broadway shows twice now, and I love working and living in New York. It’s one of those situations where the chance to spend a lot of time in a city that I love doing a play that I love was really, really exciting. READ FULL STORY

Daniel Radcliffe in Broadway's 'The Cripple of Inishmaan': First look -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

DANIEL-RADCLIFFE.jpg

After making a bold Broadway debut in the powerful equine drama Equus and following up with a singing, dancing stint in the glossy 1960s musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, the always astonishing Daniel Radcliffe is back for round three on the Broadway stage — in something completely, totally different.

Radcliffe willreprise his role as Billy in playwright Martin McDonagh’s 1996 black comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan, which follows a disabled Irish boy (Radcliffe) who dreams of appearing in a documentary being filmed by a Hollywood crew on a nearby island (the real-life 1934 film Man of Aran). The can’t-miss production reunites the critically acclaimed cast who performed the show last year on London’s West End, as directed by Tony winner Michael Grandage.

“We were fortunate enough that we got a great reaction from London crowds, but I remember at the time really thinking, ‘God, this play, I really think it would go down so well in New York, and I really hope we get the chance to do it there,’” Radcliffe tells EW from the set of Frankenstein, which he’s shooting in England with James McAvoy. “And then it just didn’t look like it was going to happen, so when the opportunity came around again earlier this year, I just leapt at it. We had a great time doing it in London, and I’m pretty sure I can speak for everyone involved when I say that.”
